Note: we recognize that words like terrorist, assault rifle, and brandishing have specific legal definitions that are different from how these words are commonly used by people outside of the Open Carry movement. This means that the people in featured image for this episode were not technically terrorists and they were not brandishing assault rifles. This distinction in law allows them to avoid penalty while enjoying the benefits of intimidating the people around them. These people are defacto terrorists because that’s what they are in fact, if not in law.

Nobody cares about the distinction between a hebophile and a pedophile, and nobody cares about the distinction between domestic terrorists and the people in this picture. ~cb
